For Problems 43 – 62, factor each polynomial.
The factorization of the given polynomial.
To factorize the trinomial in the form: ax2 + bx + c
1) Factor out common factor from all the terms.
2) Find the product of 1st and last term (a×c).
3) Find the factors of ac in such way that addition or subtraction of those factors is the middle term.
4) Write the center term using the sum of the two new factors, including the proper signs.
5) Group the terms to form pairs - the first two terms and the last two terms. Factor each pair by finding common factors.
6) Factor out the shared (common) trinomial parenthesis.
Use middle term splitting method.
